Governor Won't Veto Solar Mandate Legislation
• June 24 Update: The Governor's list of bills she may veto doesn't include the solar water heating mandate for new homes built in 2010 and beyond.
According to the Honolulu Advertiser’s Capitol Bureau, the solar water heater mandate legislation is not on the list of 52 bills Governor Lingle has under consideration for a veto. The Advertiser’s website mentions only a few of the 52, and the bureau chief says SB 644 isn’t among them. That is welcome news, indeed.
Now, let's see if the responsible party in the Governor's office will undo the luxury sport SUV lease and find a vehicle for her that gets at least 20 mpg. The Infiniti should go.
